George James Carpenter, a tried-and-true lifelong New Englander turned Upstate New Yorker, began his career over 10 years ago as a community oriented photographer on an app known all too well, Instagram. At a mere 19 years old he was placed on the very-early-very-prestigious “Instagram Suggested Users List” cultivating a following of 20k+, he hosted collaborative community events and built an extensive commercial client list — pre-college graduation. In 2016, he pivoted.

With the toxicity and mediocrity of social media in the past and just short of 10 years of industry experience now under his belt, James has built a multi-faceted career that focuses on one thing in particular — creating collaborative relationships to unify community and design while simultaneously creating work that is timeless and emotional.

In his near decade of design experience, James worked for Arnold Worldwide, Compass and Evolved By Nature, to name a few. He created an extensive portfolio demonstrating work in advertising, creative direction, UX design, publication design, corporate branding, design leadership, social media and content strategy. As a multi-disciplinary industry leader, James believes in the importance of niche team building and strives to bring together diverse, bespoke and talented individuals to create the best work possible.

During COVID, James and his partner launched an antique company, Tabletop Vintage. An immersive antique shop curated into themed collections. Utilizing their extensive knowledge of art direction, curation and copywriting, the team built seven different worlds that, of course, fit on a tabletop. James and team proudly took home an award win from PRINT Magazine which honored their achievements in photography.

When James isn’t staring at a screen you can most likely find him standing in a field, stream or ocean with camera in hand accompanied by his closest friends, partner and their 100 pound Bernese Mountain Dog, Masha.

James is valued for his multi-faceted skills and thrives in collaboration alongside creatives and non-creatives alike.

As the Lead Designer in the Evolved By Nature creative studio I was able to utilize and push the boundaries of the existing brand that includes a custom built variable typeface, a bespoke typographic tool, and an asterisk to signify our impact among a world full of other brands.

In addition to moving the corporate branding forward, myself and my team were tasked with overhauling our existing website. As a company with a plethora of information it was vital to make a website streamlined so our information is accessible to all types of consumers whether it be the leather industry, skincare tycoons, or the everyday consumer interested in sustainability. 

This extensive website helps showcase a portfolio of work that bleeds mediums of fashion, skincare, and medial aesethetics while informing the viewers of current development stages.

Merging together animation, the companies branding, videography and extensive typeface the website was developed into an everchanging network of possibilities, much like Evolved By Nature. 




























































































To push our complex website further my team was tasked with developing a a story-formed site to help showcase our specific molecular platforms. These sub-sections extensively help tell the story of our leather and skincare molecules developed from silk cocoons. They provide information on why these products are vital for the future, how they work to benefit their respective platform, and most importantly — how they will benefit a more sustainable future.
